|Title:||Accessibility and spatial interaction|
|Editors:||CONDECO MELHORADO ANA MARGARIDA|

|Abstract:||Accessibility is a useful concept for representing the level of spatial interaction (flows of people, goods or information) between a set of locations, through a transport (physical and/or digital) infrastructure network. Its performance has been recognized in the framework of sustainability policy, in the light of best practice planning and decision-making processes where methods such as cost benefit analysis, multi-criteria analysis and risk analysis, can embed accessibility results. The rationale of this book is to present a collection of recent studies modelling and discussing spatial interaction by means of accessibility indicators. Chapters have been organized in three different sections: i) methods and data sources used to estimate spatial interaction through accessibility indicators; ii) spatial and social dimension of accessibility; iii) accessibility as a driver of spatial interaction. This book proves how accessibility concept and measurements can integrate spatial economics with transport and planning science.|
